have record sea ice with Global Warming?
GodFather Politics –p Dave Jolly – 7/4/2014
The data shows just the opposite. In fact, studies show that the southern sea ice has been steadily increasing since 1979 which is around the time that a lot of the hype of global warming did start heating up.
Harold Ambler, a well published environmentalist posted:
"Antarctic sea ice has hit its second all-time record maximum this week. The new record is 2.112 million square kilometers above normal. Until the weekend just past, the previous record had been 1.840 million square kilometers above normal, a mark hit on December 20, 2007.”
In another post, Ambler wrote:
“The new Antarctic record anomaly was more than 10 percent greater than the previous record.”
“The steady growth of Antarctic sea ice and its influence on global sea ice appeared to provide a public relations problem, at a minimum, for those warning of global warming’s menace. According to Meier and some other climatologists, global sea ice area is simply not a metric to consider when examining the climate system.”
“‘A plot of global sea ice is just not informative or useful,’ Meier said.”
“Global sea ice, during the course of the last year and a half, has seen its most robust 18-month period of the last 13 years, maintaining, on average, a positive anomaly for an 18-month period for the first time since 2001.”
